Speaking ahead of Morocco’s clash with Spain, the Paris Saint-Germain said (via Sport): “We were first in the group, and I think we already deserve a little respect. I think Spain knows it, and they’ve to be a little afraid of us.

“They have to be afraid of us, the truth. And why not give the surprise again?”

He continued: “The coach has transmitted a winning mentality to us, and it doesn’t matter who comes, we’ve to play our game, in the we are in lines”.

Upon signing for Borussia Dortmund, Hakimi was profiled as a quick, dynamic and powerful right-sided attacking full-back or wing-back, who is tactically and technically adept and capable of playing long accurate passes from defence. Trained as a winger, he can also play as a defender due to his physical presence. He is considered by several pundits to be one of the best defenders and right-backs in world football.
